Open Data: We need your help to deliver more high value data to the public

Posted: January 6, 2014

Over the past few years, this Administration released troves of valuable data that were previously hard to access in areas such as health, energy, education, public safety, and global development. Social Security has 69 datasets available as part of our open government program. Citizens, businesses, and other governmental and non-profit organizations need and use data and its related information for variety of purposes, including making decisions about their lives, businesses, and organizations.

Under President Obama’s leadership we are working to enhance the accessibility and usefulness of our data while continuing to ensure privacy and security. Please visit our new Open Data web page and give us your ideas on: how you have used, or plan to use, our data; your ideas for prioritizing new data releases; and any recommendations to make our formats and metadata easier to use.
